Anyonereading IMHN Issues of the^ttgaiard.TTtttl its .Ic-e. rtptlons of An:n nu^^lla iiml tin' story of the iiossthllltie* of the^city, cannot fall to HMM sbWI It In a^Kooiiplai r for koo'I iico|di- t^^ r.ni.iin. AM^once thin conclusion In reached the desire^would naturally ln^ to secure a permit-^innt BSSM in u spot so highly favored by^the great MMMH of nature, bo well^augmented hy the Imlustry, skill and en-^terprisi- of man.
Oneof the lirst duties of every well-^meuiilng liumuii MM i^ to estaldish u^in . side of his own. Not only Is It his duty^no to do from moral and natural reasons,^hut as well from I wis.-. MNMRsMl and^lnianilal rjolnt of view. Hent-puyinif Is a^most serious ohstacle In the way of pros^^perity, and th^- man who eh-siics to ac^^cumulate u competence, or anything like^It, in order that he may spend his old aK^^In BegM and comfort, cannot more sun ly^olistmet his own road to success than by^paying rent for the privilege of having a^roof to shelter him.
Ina growing city like Anaconda, where^men are steadily employed at good wages,^tl ere Is no excuse for every one not own^^ing a home. Rap*1 dally Is this so because^the Townslte company has on Its list very^desirable lots for sale in every portion ot^the city. The prices of these lots are not^only within the reach of all. but can also^he seiaired on easy payments and reason^^able time, so that a purchaser can secure^his lot by paying only a part of the pur^^chase money down, then build his home,^ami, by layln^ away a part of his earn-^li gs every month^hardly more than he^would have otherwise paid for rent^he^can meet his payments as they become^due, until he Is soon the own. r of his^own roof-tree, the slave of rent-exactors^no longer.
Seeminglythese facts have not been^rightly appreciated by a great number of^our people, many of whom for a half^dozen years or more have paid high rents^monthly, which, If calculated, would^amount to a snug fortune to the tenant,^who, unfortunately, has naught to show^for it all. True, some of the wiser ones^have had the foresight to at once secure^homes and to afterwards gradually Invest^furplus earnings 111 lots and houses, the^rents from which have so added to their^rarnlngs that many of them are now ^^;iosltion to retire with ^ handsome lent^roll and conifortabty eajoy iln ir remain^^ing years, a position in Which every cili-^n n of this meat republic should be before^ltd SsTS MMM M, and could he hy wisely^ciasplm: such opportunities us Anaconda^lft'iucls.
Thevast amount of building done In this^-Ity during th^ season just closed is hard.^Ijf rtiniltri by many cities elsewhere 0(^oopulations approaching 100, And yet
tis predicted, by those well Informed,
:hatbuilding here the coming season will^Tar exceed tills year's work. This is not^surprising when it is recalled H at the
Itin nei for ooasfortahli. atodlina gag^rnir-sizeii iniiises with Modern eon yen-
lencesis ns yet far in ex, s*a of the sup^^ply. Nor will the supply soon reach IBS^:lcmand. for not only is the city's popula^^tion Increasing apace, bin It la I fact that
Ihaproportion of families to the number^Of unmarried people is growing greater.
MMsteadily receiving good wages an-^fi Mowing the natural Instinctive desire^for the pleasures of home and the ties^mid joys af family Ufa, and weddings are^of dally occurrence, followed primarily as
Icondition precedent to I hi need ol suit^^able homes.
TheAnaconda Townslte c inipany has^been In charge of the real estate of tins^city from Its early years and has sold^lots for a. few hundred dollars which. In a^few years, could not be purchased for ua^many ihousands. During these years^ami^the work continues-have been built^splendid business blocks that would he^a credit to any city, and homes ami art*^\ate residences that for beauty, cheer and^comfort are not *xcelled elsewhere.
Theoffices of the Anuconda Townslte^company are conveniently located In^pleasant quartern on the second floor ot^the Btandard building, corner of Main and^Third streets, where plats and maps of^the city and additions can be seen and^had. The manager and his assistants are^ever ready, day and evening, lo give full
Iiformation, ficts and figures to Intend^^ing Investors. Choice- lots in various parts^of the city at prices from two hundred^dollars upward will he displayed to pros^^pective purc hasers, who will be shown^over the ground In a carriage by repre^^sentatives from the townslte office.
LetIt not be forgotten that Anaconda,^even though its growth has been phe^^nomenal. Is really as yet In its infancy,^and those who allow present opportunities^to escape w ill look back in Iha years to^i ome even as many to .lay regretlully re^^fer to what might SAT* I^ ^ n had they^but Invested In the ^^ is pasi. Now ll^the accepted time.^ Act at once, for Ana-^cc nda's real aetata prices now are hut a^faction of what tiny will at live yeais^he ncc.

nndwas one of the principal speakers, j^The chairman was J. I.. II. Alexander. 1^clerk of the supreme court. Among the^strangest advoc ates of the acknowledge- i^rre nt of Cuban ncllhri-rcnc e y was Chief^Justice lluker. who stated that It was {^Ins belief that Spain herself had Indicated^the way In her ready recognition in lstil^of Southern Ixdllgere ncy.

TheState Legislature.
FortKenton River Press: It la al^^ready apparent, from the gossip float^^ing around the streets at Helena, that^the Incoming: state legislature proposes^to Institute reforms of an important^nature in state and county govern^^ment. What these changes) will he is a^subject for speculation, but it is be^^lieved that sniiie of tin- pre sent offices^will lie abolisheel wherever such action^can Is^ taken w ithout detriment to the^welfare of Montana at large. Some in-^tereating Helena eorresponclenc-e of the^llulte Inter Mountain suggests that im^^position of county clerk unci n-corder in^nit aevereJ couatle] may ha seglegated
Intotwo depart mi-tils, and that the^ciltlce- uf coumy auditor will he ,-i I^ ^1 -^lshc-el In counties where that position^now obtains.
Theabove Is not the only county^matter which Is likely to e-ome up fur^c oiisideratiieii hy the legislature. The^other matter Is decidedly more im-^inriant, and It Is void or any gem*^btUhOa of ntreiichnii-nt pec uniarily.
Itwill necessitate ilstaldishing of
salariesand iln- remodeling of a provta-^lon of the i oiies. It Is in regard to the^county rommlealofiari The plan talk^^ed of now Is to have Ihe-ni paid a regu^^lar salary. As it Is now tin y mo sim^^ply paid for cai h day they mee t and^Hans,ut business. The result is that^county matte rs are not looked after as^thoroughly nr as systematically as they^c ould or would he if it were possible to^llnd a coWllHlMtopat at any time of the^day. To remedy this the proposed hill,^by paying the- rnwiMlaaloneri a regular^salary, will compel one of the in to re ^^main at the county court house all^day, each commissioner taking; his^turn ut staying there. That will have^a commissioner there at all limes for^the people's convenience and e nalde^the board to look niter the Interests of^the county more minutely. Another^change talked of relative to county^commissioners Is to pass a law more^definitely detining their powers. The^law on the-ir authority is very obscure^on some matters, and a lawyer, speak^^ing of the mat tor to-day, said It would^take a suit before the supre-me court to^settle It. Hy the enactment of a law^thoroughly dellning their powers, the^commissioners could act without hesi^^tancy In matters upon which to-day^they cannot for fear of causing a law ^^suit. If the power of the rommlssion-^ers Is not defined by the forthcoming^legislature hy the enactment of a 1)111^It Is very probable that the obscure^points will he settled hy appealing to^the supreme court.

Theb--i brick manufactured In the^Rocky mountain legion is that mad.^by the brick department of the Ana^^conda Copper Mining company, in this^city. The reason for this Is apparent^to anyone who will Investigate the^business of hrickmaklng. Tin- ln-st of^male-rial is used. Ihe latest unproved^machinery Is secured and only experl-^enced men are employed In the works.
Theeiutput of the company for the^past 1:' months Is ihe greatest in its^jUatory The capacity of the plant has
lieendoubled, and all the time, when^Weather permitted, work has been ag^^gressively carried mi.
Tieseason did m l open until late. It^was the last of April before anything^could In- done, and a snow storm early^In September caused the suspension of^operations.
Inthat time^live months^12.SM.n00^red brick w ere- burned, of which about^4,200.000 were made by the new yard^at Mill Cree k, which did not start un^^til June 1 and c losed Se-pt 4.
Theseason for lire- brick making ran^from April to November and 1,200,000^was the out put.
ieiders for omamentnl brick were^filled promptly, supplying every de^^mand.

A. ^ 1*. rail^^road shops, the silver smelter, the- gen^^eral utile e building, the Margaret the^^ater, Ihe lumber department ware^^house In llutte and other smalle r build^^ings about Anaconda. There Is a visi^^ble supply of pl.ooo.000 bric k, whicji Is^belie-ved to be sulllcient to meet ull de^^mands until next season opens.
Someother tlgures may give a fur^^ther conception of the extent and im^^portance of this department, when It^is known that 4.IHW cords of wood were^burned this summer and about 6.000^tons of silica from DttMn. Fire clay^was used from Lost Cre-e-k. Mill Creek.^Three Forks and tJreat Falls, amount^^ing to a total of 12,000 Tons. The work^of taking out this day and silica, of^cutting the wood and hauling same hy^team and railroad to the works em^^ployed many men In addition to those^used In the actual manufacture of^brick and they are not inc luded In the^lad above mentioned.
Thelower yard Is a model In every^respect and is the- addition to the^equipment this year. There is a c a^^po Ity for lta,(M brick every 21 hours,^hut this ynir the Work was done- by^one shift per day. which made a pro^^duct of r.o.ism brick.
